Whether your teenage girl attends a private or public school the need for high quality and fashionable school uniforms is essential. Lately, parents and teachers have expressed concern over the outfits worn by children in schools and have even suggested that certain trends and styles are leading to alienation, anti-social behaviour and in some cases aggressive actions. While studies may never show conclusively that clothing causes any specific type of behaviour as a parent the best you can do is outfit your young girl with safe school uniforms that include polo shirts, knee-length shorts, scooter skirts and drop-waist jumpers.
If your teenage girl attends a private school you will not have to worry since the school will certainly let you know what the dress code is and how strictly it is enforced. However, she will be attending a public or state school the rules on fashion may not be so set in stone and that means you as a parent need to exercise good judgment on what is appropriate.
You are better off setting a conservative tone to stay on the safe side. Your teenager will want to express herself but suggestive clothing has caused uproars in schools across the country and unless you want to be embroiled in a fashion scandal it’s a good idea to stick with basic khaki pants, rider skirts and drop-waist jumpers. Simple, classic and safe khaki pants are a staple of any wardrobe and will present a clean and neat look for girls. Whether pleated, narrow or flat you can find khaki pants with legs that fit your girls shape and particular style.
If recreation and physical education is a part of your girl’s curriculum you will want to provide simple and basic elastic waist pull-on shorts. Available in a wide variety of sizes and colours the athletic pull-on shorts are knee length in shape which fits a more conservative dress code and also feature poly/cotton twill that is easy to care for. If you girl needs comfortable shorts for class on warm fall and spring days Bermuda shorts are a great option. You can also shop for high quality and stylish Capri pants that has top-stitch detail, button appliqué and contrast waist facing.
When a girl wants to act more feminine you can always outfit your school-age girl with high-quality drop-waist jumpers, polo dresses and scooter skirts. Not every girl wants to look like a pro golfer and with stylish buckle, pleated and button tab scooter skirts she can provide a feminine accent to her school uniform that is not so revealing it is considered offensive. Classic tailor jumpers have always been a girl school uniform staple and you can find traditional jumpers in khaki and navy blue to match school dress codes.
